Mel Arce, RD, LD, CD Female Runner Nutrition

A note from Mel: I am a Registered Dietitian providing 1:1 nutrition counseling via Telehealth. I have a diverse background with experience in community and corporate wellness settings, as well as a strong clinical knowledge base from my time spent working in hospitals and outpatient clinics. I opened my private practice in September 2021.

My private practice focuses on nourishing runners, whether that be race day fueling, carb loading, daily nutrition, the importance of female runners getting a regular period, and the nutrition strategies to maintain hormonal health. 

I competed at the Division 1 level during my college years, and since then have completed 5 marathons, as well as countless races of shorter distances. While competing in college, I saw many athletes struggling with disordered eating and body image concerns. I was impacted by that experience and motivated to help athletes avoid and overcome these common challenges in our sport through proper nutrition so that they can be more successful over the long term and find more joy in movement.

I accept several insurance plans, as well as out-of-pocket payments. For more detailed information on all the above, folks can check out my website here: or find me on Instagram at @femalerunnernutrition. I regularly put out blog posts on a variety of topics related to sports nutrition for runners.
